From what I've seen, he's been real good in spurts, giving us life on the offensive end. However, every game looks the same in that he'll make a few shots, then have a string of turnovers/bad fouls/defensive breakdown (his man typically can do whatever he want with him)...then repeat.

Huh Kithcart was all money on the Florida trip. Probably one of the best players on the floor. People need to pay attention more....

Yes, during the FL trip, he had solid showing. But I've also watched every game so far this season. I'm not saying he isn't a valuable asset to the team, HOWEVER some people are sounding off like he should be the starting PG right now. I'm not sure how many times I've heard coaches and/or player say in game that he's lost on both offense & defensive plays. Does that show up in the box score? No. But it does effect the flow. Just last night, was the example of coaches trying to encourage him to be better when he doesn't have the ball. There were 2 straight possessions where Ahmad/BJ held the ball at the top, to only end up driving/taking a poor, tough, contested shot. JJ then turned to the coaches and yelled out something to the effect of they can't actually run the offense if he doesn't go where he's supposed to go.

Again, he's been an integral part of our success, and I look forward to seeing how he develops, but I currently don't see how putting him in the starting lineup is effective. Look how well it's working out for Robinson.

I don’t think anyone suggested he start over Caver, but when he goes in Kithcart runs the point more effectively lately.

Only seen a few games this season, but was surprised last night seeing Caver and Kithcart on court together for quality time in 2nd half. I remember thinking at the time they were playing well. But, team missed a bunch of reasonable shots while they were treading water and ultimately falling behind.

Have they played at same time much in earlier games? If so, has the team looked good on those occasions? Thoughts on how this helps or hurts us?

From what i read on Florida swing and what I saw last night, what's happened to our defense? Over the past few years, have really been impressed by how hard the team worked on D. Last night looked like a completely different team. Looking for better tomorrow and another W.

To answer your question, yes. Kithcart and Caver have played together some and it seems to work well. The few times Caver has picked up some fouls Jones has replaced him with Kithcart, but occasionally Wade earlier in the season. It seems to me it's worked pretty well. Kithcart is the quickest guy on the team and is often the quickest on the floor. He looks like a gamer to me , not the purest shooter on the team but he plays with a lot of confidence and is not afraid to shoot it or make a play. Excited to have him in the rotation.

RE: Starting lineup
Kithcart wasn't seeing any action at the first of the year. Not until Godwin got hurt did Jones start using him? Why? Was he really in Jones doghouse? Look out transfers.

There was no injury....I'm not sure where this came from, as nothing was ever released to this effect.

There were couple games where he didn't warmup and reports were that he was limping.

He was injured! He didn’t warm up or play against VCU, JMU, William and Mary, or Fairfield. Some people on this board, including myself asked questions, but all that fell on def ears. Sorry you didn’t notice.

Asked questions, yes...but what answers did you receive, as I know you weren't given any. My sources state that his not warming up was for other reasons besides "injury." However, at the end of the day, it doesn't really matter since as it's in the past and, regardless of the real reason, it has no bearing on the future.

Any way other than ESPN+ to watch today's game? I hate that we're getting relegated to that for everything.

Kithcart was not injured enough to not play and he was in the doghouse for good reason from what I've been told. I will just leave it at that...

It's pretty worth the $5 for the next two-three months. Most of our away games are on it. Pretty good use of $15, imo. Just remember to cancel in March.

Kithcart was injured. I know that. Not sure if it was enough to keep him out of all the games he sat but he had an ankle sprain against VCU. He did not warm up.

Again, not accurate, not sure how you "know" that, but still does not matter in moving forward.

Not sure where to put this, but since there has been talk of putting Wade in the starting line up:

Great read on the kid. Make me excited to see him grow into his potential and from the sound of this article, he has a very high ceiling. 04-rock
